Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I am pretty sure every serial killer that has roamed California has stayed there at one point. It is listed as under Bakersfield but an hour drive away, completely in the middle of nowhere. The front desk complained to me after booking with Expedia that I should have called to verify they had rooms available. The room was disgusting, cockroaches. The bathroom was so small that you would have to contort your entire body just to get in the shower, not that I would put a toe in. The towels are so old they feel like sandpaper. The chair under the table (clearly bought at some old government auction) didn’t even fit. The table had to be raised to pull it out. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in,

The motel room was very cozy. The bed had one of the best mattresses I've ever felt in a hotel. The bathroom appeared recently redone and the shower had lots of warm water. The room included a microwave and fridge and is right next to a Mexican restaurant with good food. The parking was surrounded by the motel itself and made it feel isolated. A mild complaint is that I couldn't get a plug into one of the outlets so we were a little short on outlets. Overall a very good value for the money and I will be returning as it's a convenient stop between NorCal and SoCal.
